My name is JR Tashjian. I am 30 years old and live in Ballston Lake, NY, USA as a programmer. I write code for the web and the servers that run it.

I’m currently self-employed as a Full Stack Web Developer. Previously I worked at Automattic, creator’s of WordPress.com along with many other products focused on WordPress, then at 10up as a Web Engineer. Prior to that I worked at Packet Tide where I helped develop products for ExpressionEngineSafe Harbor, Polls, and Transcribe. Building web based products is what I do.

I started programming around the age of 11 first doing HTML/CSS and JavaScript, moving into Java shortly thereafter, and finally dabbling in PHP and MySQL. It wasn’t until 2008 that I landed my first job programming professionally. It’s been my passion ever since.

Feel free to contact me at any time if you’d like.

Let’s Work Together!

I am a developer with a focus on the web. I architect solutions using web technologies at every level and every stage of the process (full-stack). No matter the size of your project, whether you need a developer to work independently or to augment an existing team, I can help you make it a success.

I am currently taking on projects that can start April 2019.

Let me know a bit about your project and I’ll get in touch with you!
